Architectural Designer

WMATA determined that the Pedestrian Connection between Farragut North and Farragut West would be a paid area (free passage for patrons) that would shorten the travel time by eliminating the need to go to the Metro Center to transfer. This connection will save time and free up space in Metro Center during rush hours for patrons on platforms and mezzanines. The passage is anticipated to carry approximately 37,000 patrons a day by 2030, as ridership continues to grow. These figures and images come from the 2004 KGP study for this passageway.

KGP studied ADA accessibility at both station passageways in the 2018 study, adding new elevators at Farragut North and Farragut West. At the Farragut West, the east mezzanine adds elevators from the mezzanine to the platform and new elevators up to the street.

KGP worked with stakeholders such as CFA, NPS, DDOT, Golden Triangle BID, and the owners to develop a design strategy to accommodate this complex overlay of interests, users, and goals. KGP created renderings to illustrate alternatives for discussions and decision-making.
